Social Engineering and Insurance Coverage: How the Courts Interpret the Policies

Recently, Natalie Douglass, Managing Director of Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.’s Management Liability Practice, and Adam Cottini, Managing Director of Gallagher’s Cyber Liability Practice, issued a paper on the harms of “social engineering.” Social engineering refers to the deceptive use of legitimate tools such as email, telephones or mail to perpetrate a fraud. For example, an email arrives, informing the recipient she has won a prize; a robocall “from the IRS” announces a criminal investigation; a letter, with no return address with a seemingly handwritten note scribbled on an ad for a weight loss program, “this really works!”

Don’t Get Sandbagged – OSHA Releases Final Silica Rule

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) released its new Respirable Crystalline Silica Rule (Silica Rule) on March 25, 2016. Crystalline silica particles are commonly dispersed in the air when workers cut, grind, crush or drill silica-containing materials such as concrete, masonry, tile and rock. OSHA estimates that 2.3 million American workers are exposed to respirable silica, with 1.85 million of those workers in the construction industry. Other common sources of exposure are building products manufacturing, sandblasting, and hydraulic fracturing (fracking) of oil and gas wells.

Risk Management Safety - Workplace Violence - Active Shooter Response

As the pace and emotional pressures of everyday life impact both employees at home and in the workplace, as well as unknown individuals (including terrorists), a distressing and tragic trend is occurring — employees and unknown individuals are unable to control their emotions at work or have ulterior criminal motives and violence erupts toward co-employees, customers or third parties. The unfortunate statistics show that homicide is the number one cause of death for women in the workplace and the third overall cause for men and women. This trend is expected to increase in times of economic uncertainty and social and political unrest. In many cases, these acts of violence occur as employees face the prospect of lay-offs and corporate reorganizations in many industries.
